SLASH, Manchester Apollo 8 October 2012

Slash was playing Manchester Apollo tonight and the show had sold out.

As soon as the lights dimmed Slash came dancing on the stage twirling around with his Les Paul playing the riff of 'Halo' running to the front of the stage to stand on the monitors.

Then it was time for the G'nR classic 'Nightrain', Slash's guitar sound was crystal clear and the band were so tight. Myles Kennedy is on top form and to me sounding at times like Axl himself, he is the perfect frontman and got the crowd singing along to every song.

Halfway through the set bass player Todd Kerns took centre stage and took over on vocals for songs ...'We're All Gonna Die', 'Your Crazy', 'Doctor Alibi' and 'Out To Get Me' and 'No More Heroes'.

Myles takes the stage again belting out 'Standing In the Sun', 'Ghost', 'Bad Rain', 'Anastasia'  and 'Back From Cali. 

Slash was on fire tonight even though I'd been told he had been ill he did not show it in his playing.

The band played some more songs off Slash's new album 'Apocalyptic Love' as well as Velvet Revolver's 'Slither' and 'Fall to Pieces'.  Inevitably, the crowd were chanting for the oldies and were not disappointed with 'Mr Brownstone', 'Your Crazy', 'Sweet Child of Mine' and 'Paradise City'.

Dressed in a mixture of Guns, VR and Slash tee shirts, this was a very happy Apollo crowd tonight.

It's not every day you get to see a guitar legend who can still play the way he did back in the day.
